I He was riding the hundred miles from T'o Tlakai to Ts Lani to attend a dance, or rather, for the horse-racing that would come afterwards. The sun was hot and his belly was empty, but life moved in rhythm with his pony loping steadily as an engine down the miles. He was lax in the saddle, leaning back, arm swinging the rope's end in time to the horse's lope. His new red headband was a bright colour among the embers of the sun-struck desert, undulating like a moving graph of the pony's lope, or the music of his song Nashdui bik' dinni, eya-a, eyo-o . . . Wildcat's feet hurt, eya-a, eyo-o . . .' Rope's end, shoulders, song, all moved together, and life flowed in one stream. He threw his head back to sing louder, and listened to the echo from the cliffs on his right. He was thinking about a bracelet he should make, with four smooth bars running together, and a turquoise in the middle if he could get the silver. He wished he could work while riding; everything was so perfect then, like the prayers, hozoji nashad, travelling in beauty. His hands, his feet, his head, his insides all were hozoji, all were very much alive. He whooped and struck up the Magpie Song till the empty desert resounded A-a-a-in, a-a-a-in, Ya-a-in-ain, ko-ya-ain . . .' He was lean, slender, tall, and handsome, Laughing Boy, with a new cheap headband and a borrowed silver belt to make ragged clothes look fine. At noon, having no money, he begged coffee from a trader at Chinlee and went on, treasuring his hunger because of the feasting to come. Now he began to meet Navajos of all ages, riding to the dance. The young men bunched together a line of jingling bridles, dark, excited faces, flashing silver, turquoise, velveteen shirts, dirty, ragged overalls, a pair of plaid calico leggins, a pair of turkey-red ones. Some of them were heavy with jewelry; Horse Giver's Son wore over four hundred dollars in silver alone; most of them had more than Laughing Boy. They stopped to look at his bow-guard, which he himself had made. I am a good jeweller,' he said, elated; I make silver run like a song.' You should make a song about yourself,' they told him, and teach the burros to sing it.' Have you had any rain up by T'o Tlakai?' No, it is just like last year. It is the devil. The grass is all dried up and the sheep are dying.' They had a cloudburst over by T'isya Lani. It washed out the dam.' It washed out the missionary's house, they say. His wife ran out in something thin and got wet, they say.' Ei-yei!' Tall Hunter and his wife drove past in a brand-new buckboard behind two fast-trotting, grey mules. He owned over five hundred head of horses, and his wife had thick strings of turquoise and coral around her neck. His brother is in jail for stealing cattle, they say.' What is jail?' asked Laughing Boy. Slender Hair explained: It is something the American Chief does to yo Fiction Fiction eBook, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
